Burma Pro-Democracy Demonstrations: Bloggers Report

Updated - Bloggers report on situation in Burma:

Jotman blog [Live-Blogging the situation in Burma from Bangkok]:
Burma Round-up for September 28: More than 100 dead protestors? -- Friday was by all accounts less deadly than Thursday; protests appear to have been widely suppressed. Not only did fewer protestors take to the streets, the Internet was taken down. Tragically, original estimates of Thursday's death toll -- notably the Burmese government's report that nine had died -- now appear too low by several orders of magnitude according to the British Prime Minister and other sources.

Here are some observations that strike me as significant, taken from the most recently published accounts: [...]

Agam / Agam's Gecko blog:
BURMESE PLEAD FOR HELP AS THE SHUTTERS CLOSE -- Wth the deadly state violence continuing in Burma and internet communications severed, that country's long suffering people desperately need outside help. This illegitimate regime (itself the very definition of illegitimate regimes) has no friends left after a stinging rebuke from its co-members in ASEAN, and China now starting to come around in a cooperative effort with Japan to influence the worsening situation.

UN envoy Ibrahim Gambari is set to fly into Burma later today from Bangkok amid hints that the regime might be looking for a way out of their mess. [...]

Video: Japanese journalist shot in Burma --

This is what i got from my mail -- Below is an actual of what had happen yesterday on 27/9/07.

I am a Singaporean working in Myanmar for the past 11 years. I was on my way to office( near Thuwana area) at around 4 to 4.30pm when the riot police block the road near "Super one, ILBC area". I stop my car with my wife and walk out. suddenly riot police and soldiers drove the truck around the corner and start firing shots at the crowd. we quickly ran to the side and squat down near the wall.

The soldiers came down and start to shoot at us. I was shot twice but i did not know what hit me. My both leg were bruised. the soldiers and police kicked us and the rest of the crowds into the drain and shouted that they would kill us if we look at them.

We were forced to stay in the drain for 15 mins and gather by the into a group.
A commander came and gather his troops and drove off to Tamwe direction.
After that ,i looked at my injures and and found injures on my left and right legs.
My wife found the "40mm riot control munnition" empty cartridge that the soldiers shoot at me.

I would like the embassy and media to know the actions of this army.
We are just ordinary citizen going to work and they just shot at us for no reason.
Imagine what they would do to the protesters!

I would like the Singapore government would make a strong stand against this violence crack down on the monks and people.

attached is the photo of my injures .
I have been attended by a private doctor on my injures.
The doctor said i was very lucky that the shot missed the groin area.
